TAG 500: ASTM Proficiency Testing Program for Flash Points of Jet Fuel

Anton Paar participated in the ASTM Proficiency Testing Program 2023 to test the jet fuel sample JF 2303 with the TAG 500 and achieved top results.

ILS* testing programs are valuable tools for laboratories and instrument manufacturers worldwide to conduct specified tests on the same material in accordance with the same test method and to compare the results.
Since 2017 Anton Paar has been regularly participating in the ASTM** Proficiency Testing program PTP to verify the precision of Anton Paar’s automatic TAG closed cup flash point testers.
In the course of the current ASTM ILS, the jet fuel sample JF 2303, was analyzed by 223 participating laboratories.
The given standard was ASTM D56, covering the flash point determination of liquids with a viscosity below 5.5 mm2/s at 40 °C, or below 9.5 mm2/s at 25 °C, and a flash point below 93 °C.

* ILS: Interlaboratory study
